A citizen proposal is floating about two have two libraries, one in the village and one at the town hall, in the hopes that it will settle the location issue of where to put a new library once and for all. The idea does have some merit, a Solomon like solution to the issue of library ownership, however it may end up killing the baby.
Unless the taxpayers vote in favor of supporting two buildings,purchasing two copies of every single title and paying more staff, splitting the library in two will result in reduced services and hours. We’ve been trying to consolidate our efforts with the recreation department to save taxpayer money, not create more spending. The distance between the village and town hall is a distance of two miles, easy driving or biking. Perhaps money should be spent finding ways to link the two areas of activity with a bike path.
I’m just saying.
